TIM 'RIPPER' OWENS is without doubt among the most important metal vocalists of the past ten years. He joined JUDAS PRIEST in May 1996, after Rob Halford left the band. With them he recorded his first Priest album, Grammy nominated "Jugulator" (1997) with more aplomb than even insiders had expected. Following successful tours with the British Metal legends, the strong studio recording, "Demolition" (2001), and the live recordings "Meltdown - 98 Live" (1998) and "Live in London" (2003), and the movie "Rockstar", that was loosely based on Tim’s experience with JUDAS PRIEST.
After JUDAS PRIEST he was enlisted by Jon Schaffer to team up with ICED EARTH and sang on "The Glorious Burden" album in spring 2004. Three years later, Owens followed suit with the ICED EARTH album, "Framing Armageddon (Something Wicked Pt.I)", which succeeded the self-titled highly praised debut by his own band BEYOND FEAR. Spring 2008 saw Owens move on to join one of the world’s best guitar players YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, debuting with a sensational vocal performance on "Perpetual Flame".
In other news, TIM 'RIPPER' OWENS has recently been announced as one of the guest vocalists in CARTHAGODS' new album titled "Unconsciousness Kills". Apart from him, the Tunisian Heavy Metal band will also feature Mark Jansen (EPICA, MAYAN), Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal (GUNS N'ROSES), Tim Ripper Owens (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, ex-JUDAS PRIEST, ex-ICED EARTH), Zuberoa Aznárez (DIABULUS IN MUSICA) and Hans T Zandt in its upcoming album.
